In keeping with a tradition started several years ago, the ladies of the United Church of Ludlow are continuing the process of making stuffed hearts that will be displayed on trees and homes throughout the area during Valentine's Day season. The hearts, strung together, will be a surprise gift to many area residents' home, thank to the efforts of a number of women who both make the hearts and then, normally to the complete surprise of the home owners, decorate their trees with the hearts. Pictured above are just several of the women involved in this project at United Church. From left to right, are Nancy Hagge, Virginia Kottkamp, and Dottie Humm as they cut the material that will be sewn together and later stuffed to form the hearts. Below is a photo of the Church, itself, decked out in the hearts from a prior year.
